BCA Author Talk: Professor Nicola Rollock – The Racial Code

Thursday 21 March

Join us for a special conversation & reading with author Professor Nicola Rollock to celebrate the paperback release of ‘The Racial Code: Tales of Resistance and Survival.’


Black Cultural Archives is delighted to welcome author Professor Nicola Rollock in conversation with Nels Abbey (author of ‘Think Like a White Man’) to celebrate the paperback release of ‘The Racial Code: Tales of Resistance and Survival’ published by Penguin Press.

Longlisted for the 2023 Bread & Roses Award for radical political writing, ‘The Racial Code’ uniquely interweaves storytelling with research to shed light on the hidden pain and cost of navigating everyday racism. ‘The Racial Code’ compels us to rethink how we can genuinely achieve racial justice.

The evening will begin with a special reading from ‘The Racial Code’ by actress Cherrelle Skeete, acclaimed for her roles in ‘Hanna,’ ‘Harry Potter,’ and the Young Vic’s production of ‘Beneatha’s Place’ and will involve audience interaction and discussion.

Join us for this exclusive Black Cultural Archives event and book signing. Copies of ‘The Racial Code’ will be available for purchase on the evening.
